MYSTERY OF THE

Slain for the Cash He
RIVERSIDE J«UL 14 w nroflf ' is the name of the man who was
found dead near thia ■ Ity on December B last. All these weeks the ques
tion of Identity remained unsolved until to-day the wife of the mur
dered man came to the city from Blsinore, where the family owns a
ranch, and, as soon as she was shown the picture of the dead man, she
said it was that of her husband.
Mrs. Shrode pays that her husband left on December 3, while in a
fit of ancrr, with the Intention of not returning. He intended to po to
Los Angeles on foot, and the dead man was found ripht on the road he
would most likely have traveled in polng there. When he left he took
$•■'oo but no money waa found on his body, showing that robbery was
added to the crime of murder by those who took the life of Shrode. In
describing her missing husband, Mrs. Shrode mentioned all the marks
and scars found on the d^ad man's body.
There can 1"' no mistake .about the identity. Thf> theory of the officers
in regard to the murder is that Bhrode was followed from home by
some one who knew he had money, and who killed him for it. Shrode
was well known In the country and the wonder is that he was not iden
tified when the body was first found, for thousands viewed the corpse.

ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 14.— Ignatius
P'.nnelly is at work upon a new Ba
conian cryptogram which he expects
to place in the hands of his publishers
in a few weeks. He will take even
wider grounds than he did in his lirst
book. He says he has discovered a
new rule governing ciphers and will
assert that Bacon not only wrote the
plays and sonnets of Shakespeare but
that he was possibly responsible for
"Don Quixote." For this he expects

Mr. Donnelly gave to-day the first
authentic outline of what the book
will be. He said: "I can scarcely ex
pect the public will accept unquali

everything which is Bet forth in my
first book, the "Great Cryptogram,"
was true, but in an incomplete form.
"I had found the cipher numbers up
on which the inner story of the Shak--
Bpearean plays were based, and I had
worked out in an imperfect v.
good deal of the narrative, l had not
discovered th>- rule on which the nar

word of the story, 1 could tell just
where to look for the next. All my

rule, and I now have no doubt my
book will establish the truth that the

"But the new book will go beyond
this in some respects. There was orig

containing this Inscription:

And curst be he who moves my bones.
"This was given in what the biog

philosophical works, "De Augn:eiitis,"
set forth what he called a 'bi-i;

could be expressed by two different
kinds of alphabets of different sixes.
I will show that the odd Inscription on
Shakespeare's gravestone, when the
Bacon bl-literal cipher is applied,
works out by regular and consecutive
rule these words: "Francis Bacon

Special Dispatch to The Call.
AUBURN, Jan. 14.— One of the most
important captures in the history of
counterfeiters of United States coin
was made near Auburn last night.
About six weeks ago Detective Henry
Alter of Sacramento ascertained that a
certain person was having portions of
a steel press and plates made at the
Union Iron Works in Sacramento. Al
ter concluded that the fellow was pre
paring to set up a counterfeiting plant.
He notified United States Secret Agent
Harris and began shadowing the man.
The officers finally located him in Pla
cer County, and, aided by information
received by Harris from Sheriff Conroy
about a year ago, came to Auburn and
found him here. He was J. \Y. Rich
ardson, and was captured in a cabin
about two miles from town.
<>n rearing the cabin the officers
could hear the press running, and, ac
cording to th<'ir count, dollars were b-
ing manufactured at the rate of one a
minute. The man tried to br<-ak away,
but the officers were too much for him.
In his cabin besides the counterfeiting
outfit were found a breech-loading
shotgun and a quantity of loaded
Bhells, arid it is believed the fellow
would hav»' shown li^ht had he been
given th*- opportunity.
The outfit captured is described by
Aer*nt Harris and Detective Alter as
the mi's* complete they have ever seen.
No <o.,imon plaster of parts molds
were used, but in their stead were ele
gantly engraved steel dies. The press
used was a work of genius, the lever
containing seventeen threads to thr
inch. It is estimated that one man with
little effort could command a pressure
of 100 tons. The di.-s are perfect and

OUT OF DOORS
With Other Members of the
Household, Dora Flees From
a Brother's Wrath.
NEW YORK. Jan. 14.— A Herald special from Valley View, Ky.,
says: Clell Richardson to-day drove his sister, Mrs. l>ora Clay, away
from his house, where she had been staying ever since she left her
husband. General Cassius M. Clay, In November. There has been trou
ble in the Richardson family because Clell allowed his brother-in-law,
William Bryant, to remain at his house while Dora was there. Several
weeks ago William Richardson tried to kill Clell, and shot at him five
times. Saturday John Richardson tried to kill Bryant with a scantling.
Clell has always defended Bryant from the charges of his brothers that
he had been talking about Dora, but several days ago Clell became ill
and has been confined to his house ever since. During this time he
has watched Dora and his brother-in-law, and to-day he took Dora to
task for allowing Bryant to show her so much attention. His mother
in-law, Mrs. John Bryant, was present. She took the part of Dora and
her son and a three-cornered family quarrel ensued. It resulted in
Clell driving them from the house. After Mrs. Clay and Mrs. Bryant
left the house Clell shot at them with his pistol. Bryant left before the
women got away. Mrs. Clay went to the house of her sister, Mrs.
Ke'.ley, about a mile from here, and she sent Mrs. Bryant to the tele
graph office to notify General Clay or some one to come and protect
her. Clell says that if Mrs. Kelley keeps Mrs. Clay he will kill her,
and he told Dora that if she stayed there he would kill her also. He
threatens to kill Bryant, and it Is likely that blood will yet be shed over
Mrs. Clay, dell's brothers say that he is angry because he is not get
ting enough money from General Clay.
TO THE YUKON
Rival Companies Will
Race in the Building
Projects Involving the Expen
diture of Sixteen Million
Eucrt Road to Run From Pyramid
Harbor to Points on Lewis
Special Dispatch to The Call.
TACOMA. Jan. 14.— A railroad build
ing race involving the expenditure of
$16,000,000 has been commenced by two
wealthy corporations, each of which de
sires to own the first railroad into the
Yukon country. Each road -will be
about 400 miles long, running from
Pyramid Harbor, near the head of
Lynn Canal, to points on Lewis River,
below Five Finger Rapids.
The companies back of the railroad
pmjccts are the London Exploration
Company, which means the Roths
childs, and the Yukon Company, organ
ized last summer by Andrew F. Bur
leigh, the principal stockholders of
which are Philadelphia and New York
men. Both corporations have engineers
and surveyors at work between Pyra
mid Harbor and the Lewis River.
Their efforts at present are confined
chiefly to- the first sixty miles, which
will take the roads over the summit of
ChilkOOt Pass and down into tt* valley
beyond. This will be the most expen
-iv. part <>f the road to build, costing
from $25,iXK> to $40,000 a mile. The pro
jectors of both n/ads figure on an aver
age cost of over $20,000 a mile, requir
ing an outlay of over $5,000,000 for each
road. The equipment for each will cost
about $1,000,000 more.
Both companies are actively prepar
ing to send forward materials, and at
the same time working to secure the
sanction of Congress to their building
through American territory. Rights of
way from Canada have been obtained.
General Manager Dickinson of the Yu
kon Company said to-day:
"Yes; there is room on the Dalton
trail for two railways, and I believe
they will both be built. Mr. Bratnober
and the London Exploration Company
undoubtedly mean business, and I am
sure we do. I believe there will be two
towns on Pyramid Hnrbor. The Chil
koot Pass is very suitable for a rail
road, the ascent being gradual instead
of short and Fteep, as on other passes.
W" shall strike the Lewis River below
Five Finger Rapids, thus getting be
low all impediments to navigation. We
have twelve river steamers and a large
number of barges building. After the
road is finished these steamers will be
operated between Its river terminus
and points down the river, including
Dawaon and Circle- city.
"The development of Alaska has com
menced, and will progress from
now on on a large scale. The placer
gold production will be enormous for
five years or more, until the quartz
mines begin producing. Then they will
leave the placers far behind in produc
tion. I have no doubt that the mother
lode of the Klondike has been discov
ered. Its location was pretty well es
tablished by Surveyor Ogilvie of the
Dominion Government, and later evi
dence confirms the reports made to and
by him. Development of quartz mines
will determine where the permanent
supply centers will be on the Yukon
River, and after that, I have no doubt,
railroad! will be extended into the
heart of the country."
The building of roads will require all
of this year. By the summer of 1599
Manager Dickinson expects to carry
passengers from Sound cities to Daw
son In five days.

CARSON, Jan. 14.— 1t is now a mat
ter of general belief in Genoa that the
coils of evidence are tightening about
those engaged in the lynching of Über.
Witnesses were being examined all
day, but owing to the rule adopted by
the jury no witness nor juryman is al
lowed to talk of the proceedings in the
jury room. It is impossible, however,
to prevent some knowledge of what is
going on getting out.
Henry Johnson, the first witness
called to-day, testified to having been
asked by a man to help hang Über, and
he gave the man's name. Alexander
Miller was approached by two men and
when he refused he was roundly cursed
for declining to join the party.
Mr. Blackweil, a ranch foreman, tes

It was said yesterday that Mason
Crummish, a blacksmith of Gardner
ville, would turn State's evidence, but
ho was called before the jury and, it Is
said, refused to testify.
The impression is that the jury will
indict several persons, as It is making
an exhaustive investigation and leav
ing nothing undone to bring out the
truth. To-day subpenas were issued
for two witnesses who are supposed
to be the most important of all, but
they will not be examined before next
week. Most of the jurors are farmers
and they have adjourned to meet next
Monday at 10 o'clock.
It was supposed. that the relatives of
Über in the East would sue Douglas
County, but his sister writes to Alf

does not want money for his death,
but says that his relatives, who are

LONDON, Jan. 15.— The Rome corre
spondent of the Daily Chronicle, In a
startling Statement this morning, quotes
largely from an article in Civilta Catollca,
which he declares is directly inspired by
the Vatican and the Pope, advocating, as
to the solution of the etrrnal questions
between the Vatican and th.> (julrinal,

Pope's Christmas allocution, declares that

"Probably there would no truth in the
supposition that either Cardinal Rampolla
or the Pope has any idea of even a tem

but yet they believe, while peace with
